Moving to the Netherlands With Schepens

Despite the Netherlands being one of the smallest counties in Europe, it is in fact one of the richest and important countries on the continent. Economically, the Netherlands is very stable which is reinforced by its crucial industries such as agriculture, food processing, gas and oil. Currently, the country offers strong job prospects in a wide range of sectors, excellent salaries, and a high level of education.

If you’re moving to the Netherlands and still searching for the best place to live; here are 5 locations expats recommend.


1. Amsterdam

Stunning architecture, iconic canals, stretching parks and an abundance of cultural and social events – Amsterdam is a very sought after place to live. The city centre is a popular location with expats, despite the predictable expenses attached. Over recent years, the eastern dockland has been under substantial redevelopment; now offering a large range of modern housing, with wonderful views overlooking the river.

2. Rotterdam

After moving to Rotterdam, expats have described the location as a thriving, modern city – and a bustling cultural hotspot. Notably more affordable than moving to Amsterdam, Rotterdam prides itself on being culturally diverse. The city is home to classic and cutting edge architecture, Europes largest harbour and some of Netherlands’ largest companies. With a long stretch of road, rail and river network, Rotterdam is often referred as the gateway to Europe.

3. The Hague

The Hague is diplomatic and political heart of the Netherlands featuring numerous historic monuments and deluxe hotels. A large percentage of the population comprises expats, where the city has a thriving cosmopolitan social scene. Expats say that the city feels more like a town, and offers a real sense of community to those who make it their home. Outdoor lovers will be drawn towards the many parks and forests throughout The Hague. It’s also the only city with an 11km stretch of coastline directly on the North Sea Coast

4. Utrecht

Utrecht is a city in central Netherlands. It’s recently become a large and dynamic centre due to the increasing amount of the population that are under 30. The city comprises a stunning centre, a highly regarded university, surrounded by plenty of countryside and greenery. The waterfront utilises an area of the city which was once home to medieval warehouses – these now form captivating locations to eat and drink with terraced walkways that expand right to the waterfront.

5. Eindhoven

Eindhoven is a hub for start-up companies and employment oppurtunities. Today, there’s a large community of expats in the city, thanks to hi-tech and multinational employers. Additionally, there’s a highly ranked Technical University and Design Academy – which attracts many international students each year. Eindhoven has good transport connections from the centre; the railway station and airport are close-by. Theres a vibrant nightlife too – the city is home to the countries longest cafe bar and strip in the country.
